The food is good and decent portion sizes, only downside is that it's pretty pricy, especially compared to getting local Chinese food in Chongqing.

I lived in Houston for a while, and this is on par with the Tex-Mex experience I remember. The Fajitas are really great.

The homepage www.cactustexmex.com says the place is open Monday - Friday 12-2PM. I arrived on a Wednesday at 1PM and it was closed. Complete waste of my time.

Discovered this restaurant from reviews here at TripAdvisor so needed to visit Cactus Tex Mex and we were not disappointed. Deserved reputation with great food, and great service. Our group tried the Taco's, Buffalo Wings, Fajitas and all food looked and tasted great. Only minor disappointment was the cocktails, the Margarita was weak (pale) with not much lime flavour.

Nice menu, good beer, great burrito. A really welcome change from hot pot! Highly recommended if you're in Chongqing and looking for a Western meal.

I finally found my way to Cactus Texmex and the place looked really nice; an artificial fireplace with two leather sofas, cozy padded stools on the bar and a pool table and chilly music playing in the background. The crowd was international: 1/3 locals and the rest were expats. Service was friendly and I could place my order immediately I... More

Your experience will be great or average depending on how long you have been away from the west. If you expect as full on western Tex-Mex place like in the west, you will judge it average. If you have been in China a long time and want western food, then you will think it is a great place. The place... More

Non Chinese travelers who come to china would be initially shocked by the amount of MSG local restaurants put in their food. I had a terrible headache and my mouth and throat became parched after eating local foods. So it was a welcome relief when we were directed to this Mexican restaurant. It seems a favorite of many expats. I... More
